Long Island Iced Tea

I know there is no tea in these drinks.


Just for the record, I would like to make sure everyone knows that there is no tea is a Long Island Iced Tea. It is a very strong, alcoholic cocktail. But since so many people who visit this site are looking for Long Island recipes, I thought I should oblige. The basic recipe is just equal portions of vodka, gin, triple sec, rum and tequila. Add some Cola and that's it. There are some variations though:

Version 1 (traditional)
1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz light rum
1/2 oz tequila
2 oz sour mix

Mix with ice and then top with Cola.

Version 2
2 cups ice cubes
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce gin
1 ounce white rum
1 ounce white tequila
1/2 ounce triple sec
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Cola, or to taste
2 lemon wedges

Shake everything but cola and wedges in a cocktail shaker. Pour into glasses and top with Cola, and a lemon wedge.

Version 3
3 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Light Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Gin
1 oz Vermouth
3 oz Sour Mix
6 oz Cola
1/2 oz Tequila

Combine everything and serve with ice.
